So, what is hydrolyzed animal elastin?

Hydrolyzed animal elastin is a protein derived from animal tissue that has undergone a process of hydrolysis, which breaks it down into smaller, more easily digestible fragments. Elastin is a key component of connective tissues like skin and tendons, providing elasticity and strength. Hydrolyzed animal elastin is often used in cosmetic and personal care products for its moisturizing and anti-aging properties, as well as in supplements and food products for its potential benefits to joint health and tissue repair. It may also be used as a flavor enhancer due to its naturally occurring amino acids.
